Alzheimer's, your health and your wallet

Knoxville (WVLT) - Alzheimer's disease can take a big toll on a person's health and their wallet.

A new report shows the annual health care cost of an alzheimer's patient is around 33 thousand dollars...That's triple the cost of older people without the disease.

Experts point out the total cost doesn't even include family members who put in billions of hours of unpaid care.
